“one of my favorite Mexican restaurants!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

I have always loved everything about this place; eaten here dozens of times over the years, but now can only visit a couple of times a year, it's still great. The salsa is hot, hot, hot! And every flavor just screams New Mexican. Chile Rellenos are the best anywhere, and don't forget the sopaipillas!

“My Favorite for Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2007

One of my favorite their is the Beef Fajitas. Old Roads is not greasy like the other places. I usually ask the waitress to bring out extra corn tortillas with the Fajita order.

Another popular meal is their Combination Plate. It includes a large Chile Relleno, two enchiladas, one beef and one chicken. One enchalada is covered in green sauce, the other with red. Rice and beans are included.

When they bring out chips and salsa. I ask the waitress for a side of beans and guacamole. We use all three for dips till the meal arrives. There fast at bringing more chips. They are very good at giving free drink refills. The refried beans are excellent as is all their food.

We take the family there almost weekly to eat. Old Road House Inn is located 16 miles east of Tularosa just off a rather new 4-lane highway. Driving east, take the next left after you go under the elevated walkway, slow down at the deserted gas station, take the next left at the cattle guard. It's about 1/8 mile down the road. Thats a pretty drive through there during the Summer.
